CloutShare is marketed a lot throughout social media and YouTube lately as the best way to make money online.
But is it?
Of course not…
On the contrary, CloutShare is a part of a scam network which has been plaguing the internet for many months now. Some of CloutShare’s sister scams that you might have heard of are
Anyway, I am going to let you know every little dirty secret of CloutShare in this review in order for you to be able to make an informed decision about whether this platform is worth your time or not.
Spoiler alert: It’s NOT!
Keep reading to find out why.
Zero earnings potential here… You’ll NEVER make money with CloutShare.
Referral link, promotional banners, FAQ center, submission guidelines.
Value for Money
Free to join. Additional charges to qualify for a cashout. Provides zero value whatsoever.
Support through email and Telegram. The Telegram address is fake and they never respond to emails.
A few payment proofs exist on CloutShare’s website. Every single one of them is fake!
What is CloutShare About?
CloutShare is marketed as an MMO (Make Money Online) platform which will pay you a lot of money for completing a number of very simple tasks which require no previous experience such as
- getting people to sign up to CloutShare through your unique referral link
- posting promotional banners your social media
- filling in online surveys
- installing applications on your mobile phone
- entering contests
- etc, etc
More specifically, CloutShare is supposed to pay you
- $25 just for signing up
- $2 for each person who clicks on your referral link
- an additional $10 for each person who signs up to CloutShare after clicking on your referral link
- $30 for filling in surveys and entering contests
- $10 for installing applications on your mobile phone
- $50 for creating YouTube videos promoting CloutShare
Everything sounds pretty good up until this point right?
The only problem is that CloutShare will NEVER actually pay you. They will credit your CloutShare account with money for every task you complete in order to make you think that the platform works and get you to complete even more tasks, but once you request an actual payment of that credited money, you’ll realize that CloutShare never intended to pay you in the first place.
Let me explain further…
How Does CloutShare Work?
First of all, CloutShare lures people in with the promise of a $25 sign up bonus…
Many people join CloutShare only because they think that they can get their hands on that $25 bonus right after creating their account.
This is exactly how I ended up joining one of CloutShare’s sister scams, Viral Pay, for the first time a few months ago.
However, in order to qualify to cash out either your $25 sign up bonus or any additional money earn with CloutShare, you need to have
- referred at least 5 people to it
- completed at least 5 tasks on the $30 TaskWall
- gotten at least 20 clicks on your unique referral link
Some people will quit CloutShare once they realize that they can’t have their $25 signup bonus right away. Those are the lucky ones.
However, there are others who will say “What the hell, the tasks I have to complete to qualify for a cashout are not so hard. Plus, I can earn even more money by completing them. Let’s give it a try!” … Those are the ones who get sucked into the scam.
They start devoting time and energy into referring people to the platform and completing tasks, thinking that the next time they hit that “Request Payment” button, they’ll get hundreds of dollars deposited in their bank account.
However, what they don’t know is that CloutShare will ban their account the moment they request a payment using as an excuse that they faked their clicks and referrals.
This way, CloutShare gets you to bring more people to it as well as complete several tasks which will bring money to its owners without having to pay you a single dime.
Pretty appalling right?
Well, this is it… This is how CloutShare actually works or to be more accurate, doesn’t work.
- It lures you in with a $25 signup bonus
- Then it tells you that in order to cash out your signup bonus you need to meet certain requirements (get 20 clicks on your referral link, 5 referrals, complete 5 tasks)
- You start trying to meet those requirements in order to qualify for a payment
- In the meantime, CloutShare credits your account with even more money
- When you finally meet every single one of those requirements and you request for the money you’ve earned fair and square, they kick you out leaving you high and dry
Get this very well in your head, CloutShare will NEVER pay you a single dime! You can NEVER earn any money with it!
Who is CloutShare for?
CloutShare is only for those who are willing to waste their time and energy for nothing.
Seriously, instead of trying CloutShare out, you might as well lie on your couch staring at the ceiling all day long. The chances of earning money, either way, are exactly the same.
In fact, I am so confident that you won’t be able to earn even a single penny with CloutShare that if you do, you can contact me with proof and I will deposit $100 more right in your account just for being wrong…
Who is CloutShare NOT for?
CloutShate is definitely NOT for people who want to earn money online.
Maybe you want to build a full-time income online to quit your job or maybe you are in need of some extra money to provide for your family. Maybe you are working a part-time job and need a supplementary income to cover your expenses, or you want to gain the freedom to work whenever you want and from wherever you want in order to be able to travel around the world.
Or you might have tried other MMO and GPT platforms and systems but failed to meet your financial goals and you are looking for the real deal.
What's Inside CloutShare?
CloutShare basically consists of the main members’ dashboard that you can see in the image right below.
On this dashboard, you’ll find

- a bunch of other navigational links and social media sharing buttons
On the very left of the dashboard, there is a menu which helps you navigate through the entire platform.
Below the menu, you can find a Telegram address of your account manager who you can contact when you have any questions or need support.
Let’s dig a little deeper, shall we?
Under this section, there’s a live chat which you could use to connect and interact with other members of CloutShare – if only it actually worked!
Yes, the live chat is fake.
It doesn’t work, never worked, and never will work.
I’ll explain later.

Account Manager Telegram
A Telegram address of an “account manager” to contact when you have any questions or require support.
The Telegram address is actually fake so don’t expect that you’ll get neither answers nor support through it.
You can confirm that it’s fake with a simple Telegram search for the username @jessiecloutshare.
CloutShare Success Stories & Testimonials
You can find a number of screenshots of payments made to CloutShare members on cloutshare.co/payment-proof
Just a heads up, every single one of those payment proofs is 100% fake.
Let me explain.
First of all, as you can see in the images below, the exact payment screenshots that have been used for CloutShare have also been used as payment proofs for other similar scammy platforms such as SwagPay, ReferralPay, and Viral Points (left images = CloutShare payment proofs, right images = Referral Pay, SwagPay, & Viral Points payment proofs).
In addition to that, as you can see in the image below, the domain name cloutshare.co was registered on 10/08/2019.
This means that the platform didn’t even exist before 10/08/2019 and yet if you take a closer look, somehow all of the payment proofs above seem to have taken place before that date.
This could mean two things…
Either Cloutshare.co was paying people before it even existed or its payment proofs are fake.
I tend to lean towards the latter for some reason…
How Much Does CloutShare Cost?
CloutShare is free to join.
However, it’s not really free to use in its entirety.
You see, in order to be able to complete some of the tasks on its $30 TaskWall, you’ll be asked to submit your mobile phone number.
If you do so, you’ll start receiving dozens of promotional text messages per month by various services at your own cost. And those text messages aren’t cheap at all. Just one text message could cost up to $5 and sometimes even more.
Despite the fact that there are probably ways to unsubscribe from those services, I would never trust scammy platforms such as CloutShare with permission to use my mobile phone number in any way.
Plus, if you think about it since CloutShare will ban your account the moment you request a cashout, there’s really no point whatsoever in trying to complete those tasks in the first place.
- Free to join
1 • Free to Join
The sole CloutShare pro is that you don’t have to pay anything to join it.
This way, if you decide to give the platform a try, you’ll just waste some of your time and energy and not any of your money.
Be careful though not to submit your phone number anywhere within CloutShare or you’ll probably end up wasting money as well after all.
- Has just one pro
- Unrealistic claims
- Fake payment proofs
- Additional charges to complete tasks
- Fake live chat
- Inconsistent information
- Unable to cashout
- Potential hacking danger
1 • Has Just One Pro
The fact that CloutShare’s only pro is that it’s free to join just bums me out.
2 • Unrealistic Claims
Just like the majority of completely useless MMO platforms do, CloutShare uses a lot of unrealistic earning claims in order to convince people to join it.
For example, the first thing that you’ll see when you land on CloutShare’s website is a huge banner saying “Make $500 Today!” (see image below).
First of all, earning $500 online in one day could be possible only for pro digital marketers. It’s impossible for a beginner with no targeted audience to make that kind of money online, not even in a month.
Secondly, CloutShare will never actually pay you so it doesn’t really matter if you are the best digital marketer in the world, you will never earn $500 by using it, not today, and not in a thousand years.
Furthermore, CloutShare claims to have paid $93 million to over 300K of its members. At the time of this review (7/9/2019), CloutShare exists for only 30 days…
It’s 100% impossible that a 30-day old platform has paid so much money to so many people in such a short amount of time.
3 • Fake Payment Proofs
I really hate it when crappy platforms such as CloutShare try to trick people into joining and using them by employing fake success stories, fake testimonials, and fake payment screenshots.
First of all, the fake payment screenshots that CloutShare uses, prove that it indeed doesn’t pay its members… If it did, they wouldn’t publish fake payment proofs and risk their credibility and trustworthiness. They would just publish some real ones!
Secondly, those fake payment proofs could entice tons of people to waste their time and energy into CloutShare who otherwise wouldn’t if those payment proofs didn’t exist.
According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), using fake positive testimonials/success stories is considered a violation as it encourages customers to invest in a product or service they otherwise wouldn’t, thereby defrauding the customer, which is actually illegal and subject to huge penalties.
4 • Additional Charges
As I’ve mentioned earlier, in order to qualify for a cashout of your earnings you need to complete at least 5 tasks from the $30 TaskWall.
In order to complete those tasks, you’ll be required to submit your phone number and agree to subscribe to paid text-message services which could cost you up to $50 dollars per month and maybe even more.
So, not only CloutShare will never let you get your hands on your earnings, but you could also end up losing a lot of money while attempting to complete tasks in order to qualify for your first cashout.
5 • Fake Live Chat
So, earlier I mentioned that CloutShare has a live chat which couldn’t be more fake.
The first sign that it’s fake is that you can’t really use it. If you go ahead and type a message the following alert pops up.
The live chat is supposed to be going under maintenance and be back online “in a week” but 30 days have passed and it’s still offline.
In addition, it’s so obvious that the conversations within the chat are used as baits.
I mean yeah, there is a guy who says that he made “only $800 yesterday promoting on Instagram”. Poor Marco I feel sorry for you…
Below that, jamazona is supposed to have made $385 in a day with 13 clicks, 5 referrals, and 13 tasks. The math doesn’t even add up here. Completing 13 tasks at $30 per task is $390.
Further down, Marggiieeexx3 tells us how grateful she is to have been paid 2k by CloutShare.
Don’t fall for any of that crap.
Everything is just a lie to convince you to join the platform and waste your time, energy, and possibly money.
The chat doesn’t work and will never work and the conversations you can see within it are planted there by someone who works for CloutShare.
6 • Inconsistent Information
On CloutShare’s “About Us” page, there is a claim that the platform was founded in 2013.
However, once you create your account, log into the main members’ dashboard and scroll down the page, the copyright section states that Cloutshare has been created in 2015.
In addition, as we’ve already seen, the domain name cloutshare.co was registered on 10/08/2019 so the platform didn’t exist before that date.
Furthermore, CloutShare claims to be a subsidiary of a parent company called Socifare which has been developing online marketing solutions since 2005… The problem with this claim is that there is no such company.
7 • Unable to Cashout
The biggest con of CloutShare is that it will never let you get your hands on the money you’ve earned by referring people to it or completing its other tasks.
Even if it didn’t have any other cons and like a thousand more pros, this con alone beats the whole purpose of investing any time and energy in the platform in the first place.
Trying to make money with CloutShare would be like buying a car with no wheels to go on a road trip – it’s just pointless…
8 • Potential Hacking Danger
Just now, I came across a survey task on CloutShare’s $30 TaskWall which didn’t require me to submit my phone number so I thought that I should give it a try to see what it’s about.
However, before I even got to access it, my antivirus went off giving me the alert below:
As it seems, some of CloutShare’s tasks lead to 3rd party websites which contain viruses that could damage valuable files and information on your computer or phone.
However, the worst part is that those viruses could enable hackers to get their hands on personal data and sensitive information of yours such as the login credentials to your social media, email, or even your bank accounts.
If you don’t have an internet security or antivirus program installed make sure to stay clear of CloutShare at all costs…
If you’ve already accessed the platform without having any protection in place, you must immediately purchase an antivirus and scan your entire system in order to ensure that your computer hasn’t caught a virus and that your personal data and sensitive information are safe.
So, What Now?
Okay, so you read this CloutShare review in its entirety…
Well, as I see it, right now you have 4 options…
- You either waste your time and effort trying to make money online with CloutShare (awful choice)
- You check out my top suggestions Project 24 or Wealthy Affiliate, which are proven to have helped hundreds of people earn their living online (optimal choice)
- You take a look at the dozens of others reviews I’ve put together hoping you’ll find something which suits you better there
- Or you walk out of here completely empty-handed, you never take the first step towards earning your living online and you move on living your current life for the years to come, always wondering what would have happened if you had taken action right this very moment
If I were where you are (which I’ve been), I would join Wealthy Affiliate (which is what I actually did).

- I’ve actually been a premium Wealthy Affiliate member for almost 3 years now and I couldn’t be more satisfied with it
